Date:2/5/2013

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Linda Gross's life took a significant turn for the worse after she got a Prolift vaginal mesh implant, according to her testimony at the trial of her vaginal mesh lawsuit case against the manufacturer of that vaginal mesh product, the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon.

A 47-year-old former nurse, Gross testified that Ethicon's Prolift vaginal mesh implant has rendered her unable to work, have sex with her husband, or sit comfortably for more than 20 minutes. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey.) Gross also said that, as a result of the Prolift mesh, she takes up to 20 medications a day and has undergone more than 400 medical encounters, including physical therapy sessions, doctor visits, and many surgeries.

Gross testified that Ethicon's website and its Prolift brochure influenced her to get the Prolift mesh implant to treat her pelvic organ prolapse. She said the brochure's claims that the Prolift mesh surgery was "minimally invasive" and that the risks it posed were "rare" informed her choice.

Gross's case is the first of 1,800 vaginal mesh lawsuits against Ethicon pending in New Jersey Superior Court to go to trial. As a representative of women who claim they've been harmed by vaginal mesh products, Rochelle Rottenstein , the Rottenstein Law Group's principal, implores women who believe they've been hurt by these implants to call the Rottenstein Law Group's offices for a free evaluation of their ability to file a lawsuit right away.

"It's time medical device makers started putting patients ahead of profits," Rottenstein says.

The Rottenstein Law Group's Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Information Center describes all of the issues vaginal mesh patients face and explains their options.
